    Hi Knucks. You can if you are happy with the look of that last. Will make sizing a lot easier. Just for info, the SJ runs about .5 larger than the SD last and feels bigger throughout as it has a more volumous raised profile.

    Hi Tavoz, any other brands you know your sizing in for comparison purposes, it's a reasonable jump between a 9 and 10 even if the width is different.

    8-10 weeks? That's bad but not so bad, I had to wait 13 and I'm sure others on here have horror stories of even longer - the good thing is once they come, all that waiting will be forgotten


    And to the post before - I don't believe you can do bounty hunters in horsehide... baker's does semi-dress in horsehide but I think that's it.

    Probably not. I'm pretty sure they put the wait time from when they first posted that boot configuration page. It's probably way outdated.

    Does White's make any boots dressy enough for a business casual office setting? Having a hard time finding a configuration that would work Semi-dress with non-celastic toe box or something? Pretty sure that wasn't an option (EDIT: I might be thinking of the HH SDs only)

    Looking at getting some boots for the fall that I can wear to and after work. In the alternative going to get some Tricker's stow boots w/ danite soles, but don't have to be that dressy... don't want full leather soles, but maybe 1/2's.

    Pretty sure SD is available without the celastic toe - and the sence of dressiness really depends on the leather choice - water buffalo and french calf can be very dressy. Leather sole too...

    This info has been deleted - thanks for the heads up! It would sure be nice if they were taking 3-5 weeks [​IMG]
    Current lead times are 8-10 weeks but please keep in mind this is a very extreme fire season this year and a lot of demand for smoke jumper boots! We appreciate your patience.

    Thanks blaster - wearing some Alden's at work right now as a matter a fact --- can't wait to get home and put some white's on for the night though [​IMG]

    And thanks daizawaguy - agree with you on the leather choices, really mixes it up

    Tigerpack---Maybe you are looking for something like this….

    It is Burgundy French calf with half sole and medallion toe cap. Only thing I would do different is get close trim. Also, if you call White’s or Baker’s I’m sure you could get them with an unreinforced toe.
